Crafted Weekly Tasting Change

Hey everyone,

We’ve run into a minor road bump and we’re having to move the date of our Almanac Beer Co tasting toFriday, April 14th.  We hope you’ll still come out and see us that evening, and at our new tasting this week on Thursday, March 30th.  Join us as we taste some of our favorite sessionable beer for the spring and summer! Now that the weather is warming up, there’s no better time to find your new “lawn mower beer.”  Sorry for any inconvenience.

Thanks again,

Carl & Vance

Thanks to everyone who came out for our tasting with Shawn and Birds Fly South Ale Project!  We had several people come in unsure about sours and farmhouse inspired ales but helped change a few minds.  If you enjoyed what you tasted, Shawn is hoping to get product out into the market in July – and we can’t wait!  We’ll make sure that we help everyone stay up to date on their opening progress.

Join us this upcoming Friday, June 5th, for our tap takeover with Sixpoint Brewery out of Brooklyn, New York!  These “mad scientists” are best known around here for their Resin Imperial IPA, but they’ve got a lot of other delicious canned beer as well.  Stop in any time from 5-7 PM for a taste at some of their different brews including Resin on tap!

It’s almost time for our third anniversary!  Beginning on the 1st of June, we’ll start our annual charity basket raffle.  Entries are $5, just like last year, and each entry gives you a chance to win a box of limited releases from this past year.  We’ve included a list of local charities on each entry because we want you to decide where the donation should go each year.  There’s no limit on the number of entries per person and we have a full list of brews here at the store.

On July 11th, we’ll be joined by Brewery 85 for our anniversary tap takeover!  We’ll have several of their kegs on tap for your enjoyment as well as a cask!  There will be door prizes throughout the day and we’ll finish the day by drawing the winner of the charity basket.  We’ll post more details about event time, beer selection, and catering soon, so be on the look out!

We’re excited to be able to help fill your beer needs now and in the future.  If you’ve got any beer suggestions or ideas, or any feedback, we would love to hear it!  Keep an eye out for more emails in the future with updates about events, new beers, new kegs, and more!  If you’d like daily updates and information about kegs as they’re tapped, make sure to like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.

Thanks to everyone who came out for our summer beer tasting this past Thursday!  Between our new arrivals and fan favorites we found something for almost everyone. Uinta‘s Sum’r made a strong showing thanks to being a sessionable 4% ABV Golden Ale with plenty of flavor.  If you need a new poolside or camping beer then stop in and take a look at our selection of summer cans!

Join us this upcoming Thursday, May 14th, from 5-7 PM for a tasting featuring Gose!  As the Gose style continues to grow in popularity, breweries continue to release their own twist on the style.  These sour (and often salty) wheat ales make great companions for a hot summer day.  Stop in any time during the two hour window for a chance to try four distinctly different Gose’s!

Birds Fly South is an upcoming Belgian-inspired brewery led by Shawn Johnson. BFS will use open fermentation and plans to have two locations – one in the Upstate and one in Florida – where they can experiment with how climate and humidity changes beer. Stop in any time from 5-7 PM on Friday, May 22nd, to pick Shawn’s brain and taste some Belgian-inspired greatness.

Thanks to everyone who joined us for our Pale Ale tasting this past Thursday!  We thought it would be a fun chance to get back to our roots.  Several people enjoyed revisiting several brews they hadn’t had in years.

Join us this upcoming Thursday, August 7th, from 5:30-7:30 PM for a tasting featuring Reds and Ambers.  After our Pale Ale tasting, we wanted to continue to revisit old classics.  Reds and Ambers make the perfect transition beer for the end of summer and beginning of fall.  We’ll have a selection of regional fan favorites for your tasting pleasure, so be sure to stop by.

This week marked the return of several popular fall releases, including Sierra Nevada‘s Flipside Red IPA.  It was originally released last year as a seasonal alongside their Tumbler but was so incredibly popular that they’re no longer brewing Tumbler.  Flipside features a solid malt backbone alongside Citra, Simcoe, and Centennial hops.  If you’re looking for a perfect between seasons IPA that will carry you through fall, look no further than Flipside.

We’re excited to be able to help fill your beer needs now and in the future.  If you’ve got any beer suggestions or ideas, or any feedback, we would love to hear it!  Keep an eye out for more emails in the future with updates about events, new beers, new kegs, and more!  If you’d like daily updates and information about kegs as they’re tapped, make sure to like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.

Thanks to everyone who came out for our Pilsner tasting this past Thursday!  We tasted two Czech style and two German style Pilsners for the end of the summer.  Mama’s Little Yella Pils by Oskar Blues was hands down the fan favorite.

Join us this upcoming Thursday, July 24th, from 5-7 PM for a tasting featuring Belgian style Tripels.  Tripels have been a very popular style since our opening and have some amazing flavors.  We thought now would be a great time to introduce more people to the style.  We’ll have a mixture of both new arrivals and fan favorites for everyone to try.

This week brought us the “full house” from Big Boss Brewing out of Raleigh, North Carolina!  Three of their labels are now available on our shelves and we don’t think you’ll be disappointed.  If you’re a hop head, be on the lookout for their High Roller IPA and Hell’s Belle Belgian Pale Ale.  We’re excited for the arrival of the rest of their labels and hope you’ll help us give them a warm welcome!

We’re excited to be able to help fill your beer needs now and in the future.  If you’ve got any beer suggestions or ideas, or any feedback, we would love to hear it!  Keep an eye out for more emails in the future with updates about events, new beers, new kegs, and more!  If you’d like daily updates and information about kegs as they’re tapped, make sure to like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter.
